In honor of Black History Month, and in conjunction with the Michael P. Anderson Memorial Aerospace Program—an annual event that gives underserved students the chance to participate in the Museum's educational programs—the Museum will hold an empowering lecture featuring special guest astronaut Greg “Ray J” Johnson.

Greg will share his adventures as a NASA pilot flying everything from the space shuttle on the final Hubble telescope serving mission, to the bulbous Super Guppy delivering the shuttle trainer to The Museum of Flight.

FREE with Museum admission.


The Michael P. Anderson Memorial Aerospace Program (MPA) at The Museum of Flight is named in honor of Washington native and payload commander of the Space Shuttle Columbia. It leverages Michael’s legacy to inspire underserved middle school (6th-8th) youth from throughout Washington State to participate in the Museum’s exciting educational programs while being mentored by professionals in the aerospace and aviation industry.
